Police patrol illegal hunting with deer doppelganger
Tuesday, October 09, 2007

Unlawful deer hunters could be in for a surprise if they happen to take a pot shot at the Oregon State Police's Wildlife Enforcement Decoy. As of the opening of deer season Sept. 29, the bogus "Bambi" could show up at virtually any of the state's most popular hunting grounds, said OSP Lieutenant Dave Cleary. It will be utilized in select wildlife management units to address tag compliance, unlawful take and prohibited harvest methods. The decoy allows officers to conduct controlled investigations in high-complaint areas without harming actual wildlife. The contact with violators is focused on increasing safety, Cleary said. In the last two years, the decoy was used 499 times, resulting in 317 citations and arrests. The Wildlife Enforcement Decoy Program has been used in Oregon since 1991.
